A Father's Prayer

Poem By Carolyn Padgett Summerlin

As I wall through the meadows
And woodlands of our country
I pray the peace of God's nature
Will always abide with you,
As the eagles spread their wings
Over the mountains and the sea
I pray that freedom's spirit
To be whatever you wish to be
Will always soar in your soul.
As the mighty ocean's gales
Blow through the ships' sails,
I pray that faith will keep you
always because faith never fails,
As the stars sparkle in the lakes
And sunlight ripples in the streams
I pray my children, you will always
Keep reaching for your dreams
Because it was a dream of God
That placed you here with me
And it was the constant believing
That makes the winds blow free
I pray that hope will light your path,
And courage guides your destiny
As we face the turning of
The pages of this century
My children I wish you love
And fond memories shine forever
Like a lighthouse upon the sea
A beacon to the tomorrow
A beacon of hope of eternity
May this father's love always
abide in the heart of thee
A braveheart forever to be,
Godspeed the new century.

Summer Floats As A Waltzing Swan

Summer floats like a swan
Gracefully with blossoms so fair
Swans waltzing with melodious flare
Dancing in the lakes and streams

Whence Cometh The Falling Leaves?

Whence cometh the falling leaves?
The yielded grain from glided sheaves
Whither flies the flocking geese
As Autumn's breath shakes the trees
